Please make copies of the entry form if you are submitting more than one piece. Each entry must include a separate entry form.

A signed waiver must be included for each person/model. No artwork will be accepted without a complete entry form(s) and waiver(s). Artwork with obscene, provocative or otherwise inappropriate content will not be considered for the faire.
